The story of the film is about Harakailash alias Haru alias Hercules who lives in a dilapidated house. He is an orphan and he considers the house to be his parents. For him, all the memories of his parents revolve around this house. He considers the kitchen to be his mother and goes for consolation there whenever someone taunts him. Trouble starts when the local goons under the leadership of Mosh threaten him to sell off this house. He declines to do so. What happens next? Is he able to fight off the goons or does he sell the house? The film answers all the questions.
“When we thought about the casting, Parambrata’s name came to our mind first. This is because he is an extremely good looking fellow but he walks often in a lanky gait. This fitted the role of Harakailash. Casting him in this role will be a good challenge for him as an actor too. Hence we thought we should get him on board in this project” said director Abhijit Guha.
Music plays an equally important role in carrying forward the narrative and highlighting the plight of the protagonist. Hercules has six songs composed by Neel Dutt. Boba Rajkumar is the only song composed and sung by Arijit Singh. The lyrics in this film are by Anindya Bose, Kaushik Ganguly, Prosen and Souvik Mishra. Somlata, June Banerjee, Saptak, Zeenia and others have lent their voices to the songs in the film.
After Teen Yaari Kotha and cross Connection, Saswata Chatterjee will be again seen working in this film directed by Sudeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha in the role of the local goon Mosh. “When I was contacted for the role, I found this to be very interesting. Why will a person be named Mosh? The look has been taken care of by the costume designer but still I felt something was missing. It is then that I realized that I will do something worthwhile to establish the name. Mosh chews gum similar to that of cows chewing grass during leisure. This helped me to establish the name of Mosh. However I will like to add that Mosh is not the typical villain. He is a comic villain. He can start crying if you chide him” said the actor while talking to Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent.
Parambrata who plays the role of Harakailash in the film stated that this is one of the roles that he has done in the past two-three years which has really touched his heart.
With an interesting storyline, a great cast, Hercules is slated for release on the 22nd of August.
